What you should know about Reporting Trailer
A trailer, such as a car with a T.P. (Unladen Weight) and T.A.W.P. (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating). These indicators are shown on the trailer's tare plate or registration certificate (if the G.A.W.T. is over 500 kg).
The calculation necessary to determine the payload or maximum weight a trailer can support: subtraction of the P.V. from the P.T.A.C. of the trailer. As an example, for a 200 kg P.V. and a 500 kg P.T.A.C., the payload of the trailer is then equivalent to 300 kg maximum. In a simpler equation, we have : 500 - 200 = 300 kg.
The weights in the trailer must be balanced as follows: items or products with a substantial load must be centred and arranged at the lowest level. Otherwise, the weight can easily unbalance the towing vehicle, which can affect the grip of the front axle, causing the trailer to sway and eventually lead to loss of control...
Note that it is essential for all vehicles that the load supported by the trailer is well secured and well distributed, especially for heavy objects. (1)
